Palmer Brown (1920-2012) was born in Chicago and attended Swarthmore and the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author and illustrator of five books for children: Beyond the Pawpaw Trees and its sequel, The Silver Nutmeg, Something for Christmas, Cheerful, and Hickory (all available from the New York Review Children's Collection). About Beyond the Pawpaw Trees, his first published book, Brown said, "If it has any moral at all, it is hoped that it will always be a deep secret between the author and those of his readers who still know that believing is seeing."
